Something that’s become very apparent to me lately is that I have a deficit of the wardrobe category referred to as “going-out clothes“, and with good reason. It’s been two years since I’ve bought anything to wear out at night during the summer but now that the country has opened back up and I actually have places to wear fun things that wouldn’t look right before at least 5:00 p.m., I’m finding myself in need of some new items.
You’ve probably noticed that staying home sweatsuits have been replaced by going-out minidresses (and the like) on Instagram, and I’ve been keeping track. Several major categories have emerged and knowing what they are will lay the groundwork for some productive going-out clothes shopping. People have really been going all out (no pun intended) with their looks after being stuck at home for so many months, so feel free to have fun with it as the stylish women below are.
Scroll on to educate yourself on the biggest going-out fashion items of 2021 and shop them for your own potential wardrobe deficit.
